Apologies for the unexpected disappearance! The past few weeks felt like a whirlwind, it felt like I was just going through the motions and meeting deadlines without experiencing much 🙁 Nevertheless, let’s get on to this long overdue renovation update that happened before we move in! Immense satisfaction was felt when my colleague commented that our 80% completed kitchen looks better than the 3D ❤
I’m so glad we trusted good old Valene from Idzigner and went ahead with this color scheme even though I had my initial reservations on whether this particular shade of wood will blend in with the other elements of our house. As reassured by her, it certainly made our kitchen looks much bigger and welcoming!
Also got our sliding glass door installed this week and I’m soooo impressed by the sturdy quality sia. Not some flimsy shit, and kinda blocks out noises too~
Said kitchen before renovation. Duno why it always looked so dark and gloomy even though the wood color is similar to ours?
Current status: Pending our TB sink, mirror and basin tap
We got our Kölm bidets at JB’s Ginnit for a reasonable price and it is currently my favorite toilet item when cleaning the house. Damn shiok to keep washing my feet with and the water pressure is just nice 👌🏻
3D for Common Bathroom. So ya, kinda spoilt my own sink surprise that I wasn’t intending to reveal until it was fixed 🙊
Moving on to the MBR toilet… show you the 3D first ❤❤❤
Quartz, basin and tap in.
Matte black tap to match my matte black rain shower thingy. Both from Heritage~
Cheap towel hanger that I bought from a reseller’s TB haul! Such a great deal and still matchy matchy~
In other words glass frame is in and our chio aluminum door is fixed too!
Another view~ just missing the ledge for my toiletries and we’re done with this MBR toilet!
Not forgetting the little toilet seat that I fought so hard for, despite the limited space. I like sitting under the shower and just chill (waste water but don’t judge) after a long day. No before reno pic (I think) cuz the toilet was too ugly for me to even want to step in often.
Now, unveiling the star of our entire reno…
Tadah! 3D of our massive MBR!
Tbh, I was very reluctant to reveal this private space of mind cuz I didn’t want the idea taken away from me before I even complete it. Think what you want, but let’s not deny that there have been instances of people just blatantly copying ideas without even the decency to credit – not even when confronted. So of course, I have to protect what’s mine.
And that also explains my ID’s watermark~
I have shown this WIP previously…
Tadah! Just missing the knobs and we’re done~ It looks so modern and classy, especially at night. I really love it!
My pretty cabinet beside our massive wardrobe! This space was intended to be for more wardrobes initially but Akira was hesitant on our walking space being blocked – and didn’t want to go through me kpkb-ing about the lack of space 😹 so he didn’t want anything there initially. After much discussion, we reached a compromise and decided to have this small cabinet for my bags! That open space is to store our daily work bags w/o them lying around 😊
Valene has also thoughtful reduced the depth of the cabinet so that we will have more walking space to counter Akira’s worry! That’s the good thing about her la, she can always put herself in both our shoes.. kinda like the middle mediator to ease the bickering.
The bedrooms were walls of fugly pink with a red feature wall in the MBR. *faints* They also used to just dump everything on the floor there. So it was like storeroom no 2.
Current view to where our bed will be from our beauty room (I know some of you are anxious to see~~)! Love this color combi, it’s sooo soothing to my eyes.
Even better if you view it from the toilet…. the seamless blend of colors~~~
Yes, this is my 3D of my beauty room! It is more of a working space for me to do my flatlays and creative stuff, also the room with the best natural sunlight in the house ❤
Currently just missing my quirky knobs!
Loads and loads of storage space for this beauty hoarder here. Husband warned me to never complain of the lack of storage space ever again~ Love the darker tile colors that also blend in well with the greys of the MBR toilet and rooms.. minimize the contrast 😊
Before our door was replaced with…
So happy that Valene was able to help us find our gate with minimum top up. The one we saw at Gain City Outlet was double the price please (and shitty CS)!
Tadah~ we’re almost done!
We’ve officially moved in on 8/8 (huat huat!) but there’s still so much more to unpack, not to mention the tiny furnishing details to make our home complete. Idzigner will be popping over this Sunday to do some filming, perhaps I’ll reveal the complete picture when I’ve received the video~ x
